MISCELLANEOUS

YOUTH CENTRE

Port Saunders - The Town of Port Saunders in partnership with local RCMP are in the process of opening a new Youth Center in the Port Saunders Town Center (old Roncalli High). To alleviate costs associated with getting this much-needed venture off the ground, they are looking for the support of surrounding communities in the form of material/financial donations as funding alone will not adequately cover all they would like to offer youth. Any material/financial donations will be graciously accepted. Thank you in advance for anything you may be able to assist with. Your support is greatly appreciated. Contact them through Facebook page Port Saunders Youth Center or email psyouthcenter@gmail.com.
